Sections to include in every book[edit]

We should aim to include a fairly equal number of sites from each continent - having 90% of the sites in the USA or France would put many people off. Each new page should include an image (the more, the merrier), a map showing the location within that country and a link to that country's page in WJ Europe, WJ South America or WJ North America projects, a description of the site and its importance and if it's a religious site then include a link to the Wikijunior World Religions page for that religion.
